Halterm Container Terminal in Halifax Nova Scotia has announced another equipment order as it gears up to handle two large container vessels simultaneously.


Halterm has announced it is making “a significant investment in a Super Post-Panamax ship-to-shore container gantry crane and associated lifting equipment, together with an extensive order for container yard equipment, including 2 Rubber-Tired Gantry Cranes and 9 Terminal Tractors and Trailers, with an option to extend procurement to a further Ship-to-Shore crane in 2019”.


The STS crane order has gone to ZPMC, with delivery scheduled for June 2020. The crane will have a 24-row outreach, and join Halterm’s four existing Super Post-Panamax units and one Panamax unit.


The two RTGs ordered from Konecranes follows an order for three Konecranes RTGs the terminal placed in 2017, with delivery last year. Winning the terminal tractor order is a breakthrough for Terberg. Halterm’s previous order for terminal tractors went to Kalmar (13 machines in 2016), and it is thought this new order will be its first Terberg machines. Terberg has been trying hard in the US market, where it opened a regional office in 2014.

For Halterm, the new equipment is a key part of its plan to meet the needs of larger vessels. “Halterm is working with the Halifax Port Authority to ensure dynamic demand-led capacity development,” added Holtermand. “For example, the new berth extension will allow Halterm to handle two Ultra Class vessels , while recent container yard expansion and inland rail initiatives with CN provide highly efficient low impact through-port container movements. The cranes and support equipment are key to the terminal’s unique position as Eastern Canada’s ‘Ultra-vessel’ container gateway.”


Halterm is know to be up for sale by its owners Macquarie Infrastructure Partners, but there is no further news on a potential buyer at this stage.
